Raw Silk Scarves and Table Runners

These are some new items that I eco printed yesterday . . . raw silk was previously dyed with either cochineal (pink) or weld (yellow) (or a combination of the two).  I used an iron blanket to shift the colours towards olive green and purple. The prints are very clear and defined and the colours totally beautiful.

There are six pieces of fabric, most of them are approximately 72" x 13" (the perfect size for a long tablerunner or a scarf) and a couple of them are about 54" x 13" (great size for a smaller tablerunner).

How about this gorgeous maple leaf print?!

And here is one of the prints on cochineal ... you can even see the bug bites on the leaves
